The Month of Sha^ban

The Month of Sha^ban

The month of Sha^ban is the eighth month of the lunar year in the Islamic calendar and the month immediately preceding the month of Ramadan. For Muslims all around the world, the month of Sha^ban is a special time in which they try to do more good deeds than usual and fast more optional fasts than they do in other months. The Prophet used to fast a lot during this month. It is the habit of the Muslims to celebrate the 15th night of the month of Sha^ban by praying, reciting Qur’an, praising Allah, and making a great deal of supplication to Allah during that night.

Ibn Majah narrated that the Prophet said:

إذا كانت ليلةُ النصفِ من شعبانَ فقوموا ليلَها وصُوموا نهارها

which means: <The acts of obedience meant in this hadith are reciting the Qur’an, making supplication (du^a’) to Allah, and praying optional prayers>.

 

Remember to Fast the 15th Day of Sha^ban And do spend the Preceding night (Monday the 26th July) in performing more acts of obedience.


May Allah Accept Our Deeds.
